The release of the next version of WordPress has been postponed

Originally announced for December 14, the update of WordPress has been postponed to January 25, 2022. In an official post, the CMS used by 42% of sites in the world announces a “revolutionary version”, which should offer more control over the design of a site, as well as easy access to models. This will make it easier to change the entire look of your site without having to change the theme.

Among the major evolutions expected within the framework of WordPress 5.9 is the Full Site Editing (FSE) project, which must offer a new native experience to manage the interface of its site from editorial blocks. More than 30 thematic blocks will be at your disposal to create all the parts of your site. You will also benefit from new design tools, such as adding filters to images and more precise settings for button borders.

While it was to constitute the 3rd major version of WordPress in 2021, the development schedule for this new update had to be revised due to unresolved sticking points for the release of Beta 1. At issue: the launch of Full Site Editing and the Twenty Twenty-Two theme, whose functionality depends on FSE. The postponement of WordPress 5.9 was decided to avoid releasing a version that would have been too unstable.

WordPress also specifies that the CMS considered for a time to postpone the release of FSE and the new theme as part of the next version, before changing its mind.
